Penguin Beach Chair - special guest - Kathy Tanner

Hi :)  It's Kathy here and I'm sharing a Christmas card with a difference today.

My daughter loves to give her teachers Christmas cards with a heartfelt message inside

So I wanted a card for a teacher that said "Merry Christmas, Thanks for everything and Have a great holiday"  all rolled into one.

When I saw Crissy Armstrong's stamp called Penguin Beach Chair, I knew it would be absolutely perfect!!!

I do love snow on Christmas cards, it looks so pretty doesn't it?!  But we don't have snow in Tassie so it's great to be able to make a warm and sunny Christmas card.  Hopefully her teacher gets to laze around in the sunshine like this for the entire holidays.  I'm sure they deserve it  :)


I coloured the cute penguin with Copics and I also used them to make a very simple background.

 Copics used :

E 11, 13, 31, 41, 42, 43, 55
W 00, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9
C 5, 7
BG 000, 09, 10
B 93, 95
R 000, 27,29, 30, 59
Y 15, 26
YR 14. 16. 18


I thought the word "Cheers" was a great sentiment to use with this penguin.
So I used the Bold ABC Die to cut out the letters from white card.
It looks great on this clean and simple card and doesn't detract from the adorable penguin.

Thanks for dropping by today :)

SEAson's Greetings Today with Whimsy's Seal in Water Digital Stamp


Good afternoon Whimsy fans!  Today I'd like to share with another take on Crissy Armstrong's Seal in Water Digital Stamp.
For my project, I wanted him to pop up out of the water so I selected an interactive double slider card.  

Here's the two-part front cover of my card ~ 



For this design, I gathered several different bit's and pieces that I had previously completed from other projects.   I wanted each piece to add to my card but the focus to remain on the the seal and the action of him popping up as the pull tab from the double slider at the bottom of the card is pulled down.  

Following a tutorial for the double slider *, was a bit of a challenge, but the port hole with the embossed water bubble background provided a great frame for him.    I then added a little seaweed border and an emphasized the SEAson's Greetings sentiment on a white wood grain background mat, then mounted the entire sandwich of papers onto a blue 5 x 7 card base.  The PULL tab sticks out about 1" at the bottom of the card to provide easy access to moving the seal in and out of the port hole. 
Thanks for stopping by today and a special thanks to Jennifer McGuire* for sharing her video on Double Slider cards.

Xmas Hamster - special guest - Kathy Tanner

I am very, very lucky to be Guest Designing for Whimsy Stamps this month :) Yippee!

I was on the Whimsy Design team way back in 2013.  I loved their stamps then and I still do!
They have so many fabulous designs and they are such a quality product too.

I had lots of fun looking through all the stamps and trying to choose a few to play with this month.
It was a difficult decision but I chose a couple of newish ones and a couple of old favourites too.

For my first card I decided to use a stamp that I have wanted for years, Xmas Hamster by Sylvia Zet.

Isn't he adorably cute?!  He was lots of fun to colour too!



I used Copics and made a sky background behind him.
I then used the Envelope Edger Die Set to cut this piece out.

I love the way the sentiment looks on the card too.
It's a combination of the Happy Large Word Die and the 'Christmas' from Everyday Scripted Sentiments.

Copics used :

BG 000, 01, 10, 11, 72
B 0000, 01, 37, 39
R 24, 27, 30, 59
Y 13, 15, 28
BV 0000, 00
E 41, 42, 43, 44, 47, 50
W 00, 1


I think this little guy would make anyone's Christmas happier :)

Thanks for dropping by today :)

Our final card today is from Andrea and she's created a card with a lot of depth. I love the embossed snowflakes in that gorgeous sky and how she grounded both the deer and house with some light blue shading and a bit of sparkle.
